Janet
Mock

Mock ended her three-season run as an executive producer of FX drama “Pose” on a strong note, directing three of the final season’s eight episodes while co-writing six of them. Mock further demonstrated the impact of the series on the marginalized transgender community with a memorable and emotional speech at the show’s splashy April 2021 season premiere at Lincoln Center. Mock is in the midst of developing a range of content under a lucrative development pact that she inked with Netflix in 2019. She was also featured in the HBO documentary “Between the World and Me” and is currently set to direct biopic “Janet” for Netflix, with “Pose” producing partner Ryan Murphy on board to produce with her again.
